Use this method to make the most flavorful homemade gravy ever!
The first step in making this perfect gravy is combining stock and bouillon in a microwave-safe bowl. The bouillon needs to be dissolved.
Heat the bowl for one minute in the microwave and stir. Repeat the heating and stirring process until the bouillon is completely dissolved.
In a saucepan or a roasting pan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the flour, onion powder, thyme, sage, and rosemary to the pan and wait for one minute; until the flour is cooked.
Whisk in the stock slowly until it begins to boil. When the stock is smooth enough, reduce the heat. Let it boil for 1 minute to get smooth and thick.
Add salt and pepper as you desire. Remove the saucepan from the heat and pour it into a gravy boat. Our amazing gravy is ready now.
Making this sauce only takes 5 minutes, and it thickens very fast. Don’t walk away from the stove and watch it all the time.
As you know, the bouillon and stock have lots of salt. It’s better to use unsalted butter, and before adding any salt and pepper, test the sauce to see if it needs more of them.
Use high-quality stock for the best result.
If you are making turkey or chicken that has drippings, strain it, remove the fat and measure it with the stock to add tons of extra flavor.
If you are using drippings, you can reduce the bouillon or even omit it.
